address, then missed a few, and a few city emails received ad campaign email inadvertently. >> he says that it is a common mistake in oakland political circles and in fact cbs 5 has obtained a dozen e-mail sent to see the e-mail addresses from other campaigns. but still we have learned that a complaint has been filed against barbara parker accusing her of sending campaign emails soliciting donations, to city employees on their work e-mail addresses. the ethics commission complaint appears to be signed but the signature line was later scratched out. appearing in the margin of the document is a hand written note that reads " representing department heads who said the complaints ". >> if it isn't massive, i'm going to guess that it is pretty broad. >> she is her opponent in the november election. >> i have had one or to wrong emails, and what we do when we find that is immediately send an apology, we rescind them, and it is done.
6:01pm
>> she says the city attorney has ordered her campaign to take all city e-mail address off of their list, he believes the ethics complaint is politically motivated. >> it is campaign season in oakland. >> using a public infrastructure for private good is not fair. >> the associate professor of politics at st. mary's college says that while it may not be illegal to solicit donations from city employees when you are a city leader ... >> it is wrong. but i think that a lot of people in the political arena are going to say that what was really wrong was getting caught. >> we make calls to the state attorney general and a fair practices commission, the conclusion is that a law is murky. you're not supposed to use public resources to raise money for a campaign but a lot of these campaigns they by e-mail list and a trade them back-and- forth, they end up getting these government employees emails on them and they do not thoroughly brushed them off. you heard the city attorney's spokesperson said that it was a
6:02pm
mistake and they actually advise all the campaigns in oakland not to send them to city employees but they have done it themselves. >> some industry and some business that can scrub those emails off of those list? >> silicon valley, are you listening? >> thankyou so much. >> in 2008, it was brought obama and a pacific heights mansion in san cisco and in 2012 it is mitt romney at the home of a private equity investor in boca raton, grace lee is here with how a bay area magazine has rocked the presidential campaign. >> what we have learned is that the grandson of former president jimmy carter was the middleman, he convince the unnamed source release that video to a magazine with an office in union square and because of this work, we are now seeing even more of the candid republican nominee an mitt romney. >> i am torn by two
6:03pm
perspectives, one is that the palestinians have no interest in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish. >> republican nominee mitt romney goes on to say that the only thing to do is " kick the ball down field ". and hope for resolution. this video was posted by mother jones magazine, reportedly taken without the knowledge of mitt romney. >> it is shocking but part of the problem really is not necessarily the policy that is being presented, because we're really not clear on what his policy is. the bottom line is that mitt romney does not have a lot of experience in the international field. >> mother jones started a media frenzy by releasing the video of mitt romney talking about the 47 percent of americans who do not pay income tax. >> the 47
6:04pm
>> mitt romney appeared on fox news this afternoon, unapologetic about his views. >> first of all, of course you're right, there are a number of retirees and members of the military and so forth were not paying taxes, and that is as it should be. but i do believe that we should have enough jobs and enough take-home pay such that people have the privilege of higher incomes that allow them to be paying taxes. i think that people would like to be paying taxes. >> he is caught between a rock and hard place. on the one hand one would think that he would want to apologize because he does not want to isolate potential voters but on the other hand he would also be criticized for not taking a stand. >> the obama campaign is wasting no time releasing this advertisement today. >> i felt sick to my stomach ... >> on a late show with david letterman, the president addressed the issue for an episode that airs tonight.
6:05pm
>> when i won in 200847% of the american people voted for john mccain, they did not vote for me. and what i said on election night was that even though you did not vote for me, i hear your voice is, and i'm going to work as hard as i can to be your president. my expectation is that if you want to be president, you need to work for everyone and not just for some. >> for more on this we're joined by political analyst joe to mend. starting off, how much damage has been done and ken mitt romney recover from this? >> anything is possible, but the first part of your question is incalculable damage. the immense damage. this is a game changer, it is not something i used as a statement in politics very often. there's no question that by making this claim with this figure, that almost half of the population, he has basically distance himself from a very large part of the electorate.
6:06pm
his assumption was that they are all obama supporters but there is a reality that there are lots of people on government assistance and not all of them see themselves as victims and probably most of them would say that they want to take responsibility for their own lives and many of those people are also republicans or independents because they are seniors on medicare and that is an entitlement. we are going to look into and voters saying " here's what he thinks about us when he thinks no one is paying attention ". in politics, here is the rule, you never say in private what you would not be able to say in public. he never said this before in public, he said it in private and he was only talking about today because i got caught, i think bit damage will cast doubt on whether he could win the election. >> you call this a game changer and response from mitt romney's to go on fox news, is that enough of a response from them? >> not at all, they were floating this idea of doubling down on the message and that
6:07pm
means that they assert the correctness of the position but they did not tied to job creation which is his only argument, and let me remind that double down is a gambling mecca for and it is what you do when you think you have a winning hand but and las vegas people to double down double down and have nothing on their cards and tried to lost the opposition. gov. mitt romney cannot explain what he meant by this and at the end of the day he is still stuck with these words that you can see behind us on the screen suggesting that people are on entitlements and see themselves as victims and do not want to take responsibility for their lives, that is very insulting to people who are out of work and need help. he cannot around us, today he should have apologized and moved on. >> and he did not do that. >> in fact insisted he was correct and frankly all he's doing is reminding people that he is not just wrong but he is stubborn. >> thank you for joining us tonight. if you would like to see the entire video of the leaked private fund-raiser is on cbssf.com. just click on " news and

politics ". >> come november, california voters will decide on the fate of capital punishment. proposition 34 would turn all death sentences in two sentences of life without the possibility of parole. there are currently more than 720 inmates on death row. proposition 34 supporters say that ending capital punishment would save the state money. opponents say the death penalty is a necessary crime deterrent but today both side's square off at the state capitol. >> 400 murdered family victim's endorses proposition and i know this effort is not about bleeding heart liberals supporting criminals. it is about healing our communities with criminal justice policy that works. >> proposition 34 seeks to eliminate a tool that is being used judiciously and with the review and consent of juries that deliberate carefully and determined that a death sentence is the appropriate sanction. prosecutors do not take this
6:09pm
charging decision lightly. and they do not play games with the judicial system. sadly, the proponents of proposition 34 do. they have burdened the system with a flood of appeals and other measures designed not to promote justice, but to promote an agenda. >> proposition 34 supporters have vastly out raise their opponents, but money may not be enough, public opinion polls have long shown strong support for the death penalty in california. >> california businesses will now pay less for workers' compensation well injured workers get more benefits. today governor jerry brown side the built that supporters say will make a workers compensation insurance system more efficient. his office says that change was needed because the cost of insurance has gone up from nearly $15 billion to $19 billion in just the past two years. >> we're getting workers back to work faster, we're getting the
